Welcome, sweeties to 'Free-For-All Fridays'! What does this mean exactly, Blak?
Dictionary: (noun) a disorganized, or unrestricted situation, or event, usually without rules in which anyone may take part; esp. a fight, discussion, contest, or trading market.
Basically, this means that every second Friday I'll either post a short free read, fantasy image, publishing fact, contest, or whatever else tickles my fancy and yours! I'm adding FFAF to the BRB schedule to spice things up! LOL
Interviews, guest spots, and articles are wonderful, but some times it's nice to take a break. So, if you have any suggestions for a topic, or something you'd like to see me post let me know. You can email me @ Blak Rayne Email and put "FFAF" in the 'subject' line, so I know.
Seriously, I won't ignore any suggestion. As they say two heads are better than one. If I use your suggestion, I'll post your name giving credit where credit is due!
To start FFA for this Friday January 20-2012, I'm posting a contest. I wanted to do this for Christmas last year (that sounds weird, not used to 2012 yet), but time just didn't permit. Instead, I've decided to kick off this year with a little fun!
'Find The Facts Contest' -
The rules are very simple, I've listed four questions and the person that answers them correctly by Sunday January 22 @ noon (12:00 PM) Pacific Time, will win a gift certificate from either Barnes & Noble, or Amazon, along with a surprise eBook. Please list your answers in the comments section of this post, so everyone can see, and to keep things fair. ALL the questions must be answered correctly to win. Pretty simple huh? Wait until you read the questions. Good luck!
1. Final Fantasy is one of the most successful RPG games ever developed. First published in 1987 for the Nintendo console, by the Japanese company Square Co. Ltd (or more commonly called Squaresoft). The creator, Hironobu Sakaguchi, named his role-playing game 'Final Fantasy' because it was his last ditch effort to fight off the threat of bankruptcy. What company did Squaresoft merge with in 2003?
2. Founded by Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com claims to be the largest Internet retailer in the world. What two companies sued Amazon in the late 1990's, settling out of court, and what years?
